and our personnel is protected. >> in the midst of all of this michele, as you well know, there is an election going on and governor romney says that the obama administration is not being tough enough. is he right? >> look, i think that in this specific instance of these demonstrations, and what has happened in libya, i think that the response of the obama administration has been appropriate. if we step back though and look at a broader frame of u.s. policy in the middle east and indeed u.s. foreign policy in the world, i think that there's an argument to be made that the united states has not taken the leadership role it really should, that there is very widespread disappointment in the middle east for example that the united states is not doing more regarding syria, that the united states hasn't done as much as people hoped to help the nations in democracies in tunisia, and libya and so there is a way in which what governor romney said is justified. >> thank you, michele dunne, from the carnegie endowment for peace. we appreciate your perspective. >>> when newsroom cont
